Bahía Blanca, Argentina. As part of its 120th anniversary celebration and in preparation of Semana Nacional Vasca that will take place November 4-10th in Bahia Blanca, the Union Vasca Basque Club invites to participate in two contests and a poster contest for the txikis. The three proposals are supported by FEVA and will be part of the program of activities related to the diffusion of Euskera in the huge festival of the Basque-Argentine Diaspora.
